In 2015, The Fort Edmonton Park Management Company signed Memorandums of Understanding and Cooperation with the Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations and the Metis Nation of Alberta.

Through this case study, attendees will gain insight into this process from multiple perspectives of those involved and leave with strategies to implement recommendations and new ideas.
